I admit, I'm not a contender to the Most Valuable Domesticated Mommy award.  Because as a full-time working mom, I rarely have time to cook or bake anything.  But like any other working mom, I'm kind of sure of this, I wish I could stay more at home and fulfill the domesticated roles like, first and foremost, take care of the kids, next cook all meals for the family and maybe sometimes bake or prepare dessert for them.   But don't get me wrong, I do cook, and my family says I cook well (they're a fan or they must really love me that much).  Unfortunately, I only get to cook real meal on weekends and desserts occasionally.

Such as this one time.

I checked the refrigerator, found two packs of all purpose cream and a can of condensed milk.  So I said why not whip up something my kids love, Mango Float!  It's very easy to do and no baking needed, only the ingredients, a good piling mechanism, and refrigerator.

So here's my Simple Mango Float Recipe!

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups of Ripe Mangoes
  • 2 tetra packs of All Purpose Cream
  • 3/4 cup of Condensed Milk
  • 1 pack of Grahams Cracker

What To Do:
     1. Thinly slice the ripe mangoes.
     2.  In a bowl, put the chilled All Purpose Cream and whip it until smooth.
Don't forget to get a very cute and adorable assistant loves okay?
     3. Put in the condensed milk into the bowl of the all purpose cream.  Mix well.
         You could add more than 3/4 condensed milk depending on your taste or if you want it sweeter.
   4.  In a rectangular or square glass dish, arrange 6-8 pieces graham crackers.
     5. Spread the cream and milk mixture over the Graham Crackers.  Make sure it's even.
     6.  Place the thinly sliced ripe mangoes evenly on top of the cream and milk mixture.
     7.  Repeat the layering (Graham Crackers, Milk/Cream mixture, and Mangoes).
     8.  If you have crushed Graham Crackers, you may distribute them on top of the layered pan.
          But to be more practical, you may just get 1-2 pieces and grate them.  It will give you the same effect.
     9.  Decorate the top of your float with extra mangoes such as this one.
     10. Chill the Mango Float for 2-3 hours before serving.

Here's my finished product loves! :)  My kids (and even colleagues) loved it!  It's not expensive, it's easy to do and it's a practical and simple recipe which anyone of you could do at home too!
~ How about you?  Do you have any simple dessert recipes to share which I could try?~

  10. There's a new school for PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT for kids upto professionals. It's called LA VIE INSTITUTE. I was there last week with my 2 kids. Manunuod lang kami sana ng Movie coz i heard may new cinemas sa Commercenter Alabang. Then i saw this La Vie Institute just beside the bikram yoga. the school is so nice! very sosyal! the people there are also very friendly and accommodating. they even offered us drinks (coffee, iced tea, juice). when i entered the school i thought it's quite small lang but when i saw the inside facilities, grabe super nice! anlaki nya sa loob. one of the consultant assisted my 2 daughters for their FREE assessment. yes it's free **** without any hidden charges. the assessment is like an interview to know the needs daw of my daughters. well i admit that my daughters mejo shy type **** sila. the sessions are more practical like they have first aid sessions for kids which i think very useful talaga. their summer classes will start by april. and i will definitely enroll my daughters. they have a program for modern woman too!. for moms daw that's why they offered it to me. well i'll think first about it but it's quite interesting din.

    well for the rates it's not too pricey compared to other personality development schools. and what i love about this place is the location itself. i can take my yoga classes while my kids are having their sessions or i could watch a movie while waiting.
